Thanks for the quick response (also to Audrius). I tried the relative 
link as suggested, and it works fine.
One thing that puzzled me was if the solution would work independently 
of 'oxygen-gtk' installed, e. g. what would happen if my 
'user-settings-desktop' package was installed *before* 'oxygen-gtk'.

Well, I got it: the symlink is created, but broken. And as soon as
'oxygen-gtk' is installed, the broken symlink becomes valid.
The idea which got me stuck was: create a symlink on a - yet - 
nonexistent file.
